Northwoods Rebels

This past week I had the wonderful opportunity to lead a workshop for the Rhinelander Northwoods Quilters.  The class material was Rebel Architecture, an improvisational piecing technique.

Some quilters are a bit hesitant when it comes to flying without a pattern, but after an introduction to various approaches, these talented ladies dove right in.

Some were inspired by a color or a small scrap of fabric.

Others chopped and rearranged extra blocks they had left from a previous project.

Each found a way to express herself on an individual level.

I was amazed and thrilled at the different directions each quilter went as 
they explored, experimented and then turned their vision into fiber art.

It was certainly a privilege to meet and work with this energetic group.
